How to Remove Social2Search from my System?

I have stuck with the query that how to remove Social2search program...

I have done following things:
1. Run ADW Cleaner, Malware byte, Mbam (All these cleaners did not work as some blogs says)
2. Disable system firewall, antivirus but again SAME RESULT
3. Last option I have left to format the system BUT, I don't want to do this

Is there any other option to remove the Social2search program???

Sounds to this old tech, that you're a little bit light on your 'Anti-Spyware' software.

I would immediately install "Super Anti-Spyware, FREE" and get the latest updates and run a FULL scan.
I find that it finds and removes things that MalwareBytes never even sees.
I install it for every one of my customers, and I show them how to use it, and I suggest that they run it at least once a week. It's the only program that I know of, that reliably removes 'Tracking Cookies'.

Good Luck Mate!

PS: Like with so many programs, setup is everything. Here's how I set up Super Anti-Spyware
for best operation:

Then I find that just doing a Quick Scan will find all the things that I want to get rid of, like 'Tracking Cookies'.

I don't believe Malwarebytes was designed to to remove tracking cookies.
Malwarebytes Anti Malware was designed to deal with malware.

I also use Super Anti Spyware free, and it does a great job with what it is designed to do. I use it several times a day.
